7:04am

7:06am
day swing through the sunshine state, mitt romney is more confident and relaxed, invigorated by the strong debate and enthusiastic crowds. sunday, he previewed today's foreign policy speech in which he'll paint president obama as weak. >> i commit to you i will be a leader. when i am president, i will take the care that it takes to rebuild our principles and restore the principles that made america so strong. >> reporter: with the race tightening, the campaigns are sharpening attacks. a top obama adviser dismissing romney's debate performance as fundamentally dishonest. >> mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> reporter: one of romney's top advisers asailed the administration response to the jobs report. >> this economy is not doing well. the fact that you have a white house celebrating an unemployment rate of 7.8% with 23 million americans out of work or unemployed or underemployed tells you a lot about the failure of this administration's policies. >> reporter: romney made a
7:07am
delivered shift towards sharing a more compassionate side, something he long resisted, in three rallies recounting memories of a 14-year-old he befriended with leukemia. >> he asked me a difficult question. he said mitt, what's next. he called me brother romney, what's next. david passed away. i'll always remember, never forget his courage, his clear eyes, his full heart. david can't lose. i love the greatness of the soul of the american people. >> reporter: and this week's main event, in fact, won't include mitt romney or president obama. it is the vice presidential debate set for this thursday in kentucky between joe biden and paul ryan, and suddenly after the lopsided performance by the president last week, womillie, e stakes are higher. >> peter alexander, thank you. peter touched on it. we don't always give the most attention to the vice presidential debate, we did four years ago because of sarah palin, but it has new meaning because of the jobs numbers that came out friday, it is an
7:08am
important six or seven days. >> a lot for the gentlemen to talk about, thursday night, a battle in danville, kentucky between paul ryan and vice president joe biden, so they'll be hoping to make the most of that opportunity. we want to check the day's other top stories. natalie morales is at the news desk. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah and willie, good morning, everyone. an unprecedented term for hugo chavez as the socialist leader, reelected president of venezu a venezuela. carrie sanders is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the official reports show that the president won that unprecedented third term with 54% of the vote. the newspaper headline says it all, six more years for chavez supporters, his re-election an emotional moment in history.

7:13am
7:12 monday morning. i'm meteorologist christina loren. look at this spectacular sunrise over the city by the bay. we actually have some showers coming down very light, very isolated and that will ramp up throughout the morning. the best chance for showers is between 8:00 and noon. at 1:00 p.m. nice, clear conditions. highs will be comfortable. 72 in livermore, 65 in san francisco. we have a better chance for showers as we head through your tuesday. >> and that's your weather. savannah, over to you. >> maria, thank you. police in philadelphia are investigating a wild scene at a hotel over the weekend. a brawl involving two wedding parties that ended with injuries, arrests, and one man's death from a heart attack. nbc katie tur has the story. >> reporter: the nasty clash between the two wedding parties was all caught on tape. there's no word why it started, but police in the city of brotherly love say there was too
7:14am
many people with too much to drink and now one of those families is in mourning. this isn't the wedding video they were hoping for. watch as philadelphia cops try to break up a fight between not just one but two wedding parties early sunday morning. look carefully, you'll see a woman in white falls to the ground. >> did they just deck the bride? >> reporter: that's the voice of a 15-year-old that tapes it from the second floor of the sheridan. >> started punching each other, hitting each other. police came in, started clubbing people. >> reporter: police tell nbc news as many as 100 people were in the brawl which started with one wedding party in the hotel bar, and escalated when someone from another wedding party arrived and was hit with something. police had to call for backup not once but twice and say all of the chaos was made even worse by alcohol.
7:15am
a number of people were injured, the 57-year-old man believed to be the uncle of one of the brides suffered a heart attack and died. a family's happiest day turned into its ugliest. >> the sheridan couldn't do much, it was out of their hands, there were too many people, probably had too much to drink. >> reporter: the sheridan released a statement saying they were cooperating with the on-going police investigation and offered heartfelt condolences to the family. as of now, one person was arrested for assault. more charges could come. philly police are reviewing the videotape to see if anything could have contributed to that one man's death. savannah? >> 7:15. here is willie. more on the presidential race. ohio a big prize on election day. one area of that swing state getting attention from both the president and from mitt romney. our capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell was in cincinnati this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning,
7:16am
willie. we all know ohio is a battleground, but the fight is on smaller turf. a county like this, where there are 800,000 people among the most sought after voters anywhere. in some parts of the state, it is predictable, pro-obama or pro-romney. hamilton county could swing and decide it all. picking sides in cincinnati is usually a fight over who makes the city's best chili, piled high, smothered in cheese. now it is about ohio's biggest fall prize. >> register to vote here. >> reporter: winning southwest ohio's hamilton county. >> it is ground zero, right where we are. >> it is a county president bush won in '04, barack obama won in '08. >> reporter: the county has traditionally gone republican. >> this is a place we plan to reclaim in 2012. >> reporter: a shot at victory means countless steps and
7:17am
thousands of front doors. >> hi, my name is shelby, organizing for america, president obama's re-election team. >> reporter: volunteers that risk the dreaded hangups. the county democratic party is all about banking support by encouraging early voting. >> what sort of pressure do you feel as county chair? >> a lot. >> reporter: democrats need local college students involved and a big repeat turnout from african-americans. >> the support is here for the president and i know that the republicans are worried about that. >> reporter: republicans rely on well guarded, complex consumer data to find potential supporters, many who don't always vote, and get them to vote early. and their biggest ambition is winning back independents and republicans who picked obama last time. in 2008, who did you vote for? >> obama. >> reporter: and this year? >> romney.
7:18am
>> reporter: valerie and robert herman voted obama in '08, call themselves undecided. >> frankly, i don't know what i am going to do. >> disappointment on where he said we would be today and we're not there, my general enthusiasm has waned for him. >> reporter: many are feeling the pressure their votes could swing the state. >> elections are tense, seems like more people are distressed about the outcome of this one. >> i feel so privileged i think to be a hamilton county voter, to have that spotlight on what we're doing. >> reporter: local democratic officials tell us that the energy on their side took a little longer to develop, but they think they've got it now, while republicans are trying to run up as many votes as they cannot only to win the county but to offset where the president is stronger in other parts of the state. willie, voters we met are just anxious to see this over. willie? >> kelly o'donnell, thanks so much. it is amazing, a small pocket of voters, not just in the state of ohio but also florida, colorado
7:19am
will decide who will become the next president of the united states. kelly, thanks so much. here is savannah. heavyweights jon stewart and bill o'reilly have a lot to say about the election. over the weekend they squared off in an online debate. >> reporter: organizers called it the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium. for 90 minutes, jon stewart and bill o'reilly traded jabs over the serious, substantive, much of the night was spent on silliness. in one corner, comedy central's disputed, albeit vertically challenged jon stewart. >> the altitude is rough there. >> reporter: the face of fox news took on some props. >> adios, sayonara, aloha, it is boring.
7:20am
>> my friend bill o'reilly is completely full of [bleep]. >> how did two personalities such as yourself, who are almost polar opposites, share willingness to come together when congress can't. what advice would you give congress? >> and what would you like for christmas, little boy? >> reporter: after the lap dance, fire and substance over entitlements. >> you didn't say advertise on the radio for food stamps. >> why is it if you take advantage of a tax break and you're a corporation, you're a smart business man. if you take advantage of something you need not to be hungry, you're a moocher. >> reporter: they sparred over health care. >> free market failed. >> you can have government regulation of it, just don't have them run it
7:21am
was be insaid but over the snail's pace of the livestream. after paying $4.95, thousands moved to facebook to complain. >> thank you for coming out to see us. >> reporter: after the debate o'riley and stewart apologized for the technical glitches and offered refunds and then in a show of surprising and unprecedented restraint, no victory dance around the ring. >> i don't think you can look at these things, you know, of this idea it's a match and there's a winner and the winner takes all. >> the display that you saw tonight is why america is america, you know. robust, creative, no holds barred. >> get off. >> reporter: half of the proceeds of that event will be going to various charities chosen by o'riley and stewart. one historical note here, savannah guthrie, its is probably the first time in the
7:22am
history of debates that martin van burren and lil wayne have ever been referenced on the same stage. >> you're probably right. well, let me google that just to make sure. craig melvin, thanks so much. >> i actually think weiszy did come up in the lincoln/douglas debate. >> like how they did the post-debate debrief, like a sporting event. >> their rival is very interesting. >> bipartisanship on tv. >> they can do it. just ahead, the man behind "kony 2012" opens up about his very public meltdown in an exclusive morning show interview. and then a happy ending for a woman who survived a brutal assault and was told she'd never have kids of her own, but first this is "today" on nbc.

7:33am
vehicle, and we drove off. i remember him holding a knife to my throat in the front seat of the car and asking me if i was scared. the next thing i remember after that is him dragging me through this field by my ankles, raped me and then he slit my throat from ear to ear and left me in the field to die. >> did you think you were going to die in that field? >> i knew i was going to die. >> reporter: neighborhood kids playing hide and go seek found her the next day, barely alive. jennifer was rushed to the emergency room. >> i was writing notes in the hospital because i could not physically speak, and they said i would never be able to talk again. >> reporter: just days later a miracle. jennifer got her voice back. >> these days it's hard to get me to be quiet. >> reporter: in fact, she spent the next 19 years speaking up, working with police to crack her own case, and she did.
7:34am
investigators caught him sexually abusing another woman, matched his dna to jennifer's crime scene nearly 20 years earlier. suddenly her rapist had a name. dennis earl bradford, a married welder, a father himself. >> what was it like getting the call, he's captured, we found him? >> it was the most amazing moment of my life. >> not a single day goes by where i don't see that baby. >> reporter: and soon police had a confession. after decades of silence, bradford opened up. >> i took that little girl out there, and i raped her and i cut her throat. >> reporter: bradford later hanged himself in his jail cell. >> as a result of him raping me i have -- as an 8-year-old child i cannot have children normally.
7:35am
>> reporter: something was stolen from you. >> i'm an only child. i've always wanted a big family, and to know that i have to now rely on medical advances and doing in vitro, and there's a chance that might not even work. >> reporter: but jennifer's persistence paid off, again. >> love you. >> love you. >> reporter: starting ivf treatments with the help of this man she calls an angel. dr. craig whitz. >> this really is a story of survival. >> reporter: this really touched you? he offered jennifer expensive in vitro services for free. >> it was without any thought, you know, for god sake, what can we do to help this person to try to make things right.
7:36am
>> reporter: and boy did he ever. the girl who never gave up is about to have a little girl of her own. this is a miracle baby. >> she is, yeah. >> reporter: have you thought about what you're going to tell your daughter one day about what happened to you? >> i always sought justice for myself and for others, so i hope that from my whole experience she can see, that you know, i kept going and hope that she learns from that and always stands up for herself and what she believes in. >> reporter: be strong like mom? >> right. >> reporter: jennifer and her fiance jonathan are expecting next month, sweet justice. >> i feel like this is my happy ending. >> reporter: and jennifer isn't done yet. she wants more kids, and the chance to have a big family, and she may get that chance. doctors froze eight of her fertilized embryos after her ivf treatment so this is just the beginning of that happy ending. we wish her so much luck. >> what an incredible story. >> amazing woman. >> an amazing woman.
7:37am
>> you get sadness and anger and in the end you get strength from her. >> reporter: >> she's great. >> now the tough turn to weather. for that we go to mah maria larosa. good morning. >> definitely chilly here in new york city, but for so many of us you're dealing with temperatures today that aren't only going to get into the 40s and 50s and basically the eastern half of the country, you're talking about high temperatures that are going to be 10 to 20 degrees below average. look at north carolina, 40s with rain today so it will be pretty nasty. oklahoma city down below freezing, earliest freeze on record for you. the west coast is doing pretty good with all the sunshine. we'll see 68 degrees in seattle. the northern tier, a few showers, n good morning to you bay area. 7:37 now. starting with this live, beautiful shot over san francisco. we do have the heavy low clouds.

7:39am
it just wouldn't go away. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia, thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and for some people, it can work in as early as the first week of treatment. so now i can plan my days and accomplish more. lyrica is not for everyone. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior, or any swelling or affected breathing or skin, or changes in eyesight, including blurry vision or muscle pain with fever or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know

8:12am
movie series here as well. ladies, thank you for being with us. blair, i'm going to start with you, i'm a parent and we overshare. i have a 5-year-old and 3-year-old. we spread the word with pictures and tweets and everything else, but what gets a lot of people about your blog is you seem to be obsessed with it. why does it upset you so much and bother you so much? >> it doesn't actually bother me. i think it is just an interesting culture phenomenon. when i saw nobody else was talking about it i decided to go ahead and take the lead. so it's not really an obsession so much as just an interest in how parents are using social media. >> so some people say it's a little bit mean spirited and i recognize this all started with the old christmas letters. you remember the family letters go out and you hear every detail of our friend's child, their life, everything going on, but now it is twitter. now it's facebook. these are weekly, daily, hourly updates. is it about the tools we have now? is that why we are oversharing? >> i think sometimes, yeah, we have these tools and i think
8:13am
that because we are in the age where they are so new to us, some people don't want to edit themselves. i think some people have consciously decided i'm not going to worry about it, i'm not going to edit myself and they want to share the information. >> i want to hear what you have to say about this poll. we asked at todaysmoms.com, here's the poll numbers, do you think sffu parents blog is funny or mean-spirited? 88% said funny, 12% mean-spirited. can you relate to the 12% there who think it is a little mean? >> i think probably some of those people are oversharers themselves or they have not checked out the site. i know it's not for everybody, but most of the time the section is positive. a lot of parents read the site and i get a lot of e-mails from parents every day. so most people say, i'm a parent myself and i don't want to know my friend's child popped in the potty. >> kimberly, why do we do it as parents, because we definitely
8:14am
tell our friends every step of the way. why? >> just as human beings, whether we are a parent or not, we all have a that need to feel heard and valued. when we share something we are passionate about, which are children, it opens a dialogue about what our day is like as a parent. parenting is not easy. we all know as parents we have the trauma and the triumphs. and sometimes they are really funny and we want to share it because it can be very isolating to be a parent. >> what does it mean for kids, though, because long-term we are in a whole new world if you post a photo or information about a kid, it can live forever online. what are the implications for kids? >> i think often with oversharing it is a boundary issue. some of us have stronger boundaries and we are not willing to share certain descriptive pictures about our families or children. it can haunt them in the future. if someone is doing a search on them, they can be a target for bullying. we don't want that. we don't want to label our photos with our children's names. johnnystuart.com, i mean, jpeg,
8:15am
forever you're plastering a poster of your child on the internet until the end of time. >> blair, what won't you do? what won't you post online? how do you protect families like this? >> i think it is just important to remember the things that really matter are the things that are going to appeal to yourself and to your friends. just try to be considerate of your child, yourself, your friends. be aware of the fact it is not just about you and it is not just about how adorable your child is or something he did that might have been very disgusting you had to deal with. sometimes your friends just don't need to know all that information. and they are better off for it. >> you have said you hope you have children in the future. we hope you have children in the future. what are you going to do that first smile that comes through, the first trip to the potty, because you cannot share a picture? >> i'm a relatively private person when it comes to sharing already on social media, but i think it is just important to be -- you know, you can post the first picture of your child's
8:16am
smile. i think that's great. if your child has a milestone or even if she does something cute, talk about it. but just try to edit yourself when it comes to being oversharing. there's a difference between sharing and oversharing. >> all right. a little good advice this morning. ladies, thank you so much. blair, kimberly, thank you very much. up next, the legendary rocker pete townsend opens up about the highs and lows of his remarkable career. that's right after this. the hi remarkable career. that's after this. the capital one cash rewards card gives you a 50% annual bonus. and everyone, but her... likes 50% more cash. but, i have an idea. do you want a princess dress? yes how about some cupcakes? yes lollipop? yes! do you want an etch a sketch? yes! do you want 50% more cash? no you got talent.

memoir "who i am." pete townsend, good morning. good to see you. >> thank you. >> we're all kind of bowing down this morning. wonderful to have you here. so why did you decide to write your life story? >> i decided to write it when i was 20. it's taken me a long time. it just felt the time was right. i'm 67. if i waited any longer, i could be dead, and there's a lot to say. >> the title is "who i am," a play, of course, on the band's name but is that a question you think you answer through the book? >> i think i do, and i think i have. that's good. i'm happy who i am and i never expected that. you know, i was rather a miserable young man. >> what a life you've, and you speak of misery as a young man. you had a really hard upbringing. you write in the first pages of the book about being sent away to a grand matter wmother who w abusive. do you think that ultimately defined your life and your music? >> it not defined my music by definitely came out in it, definitely, definitely, and
8:21am
could i see evidence of it in my music that actually did lead me to get therapy to look at just that because i could see it in the lyrics, you know, that i'd had trouble as a kid. i didn't remember much about it, but the most important thing was the contrast with the fabulous stuff, the life that i had with my dad who was a band musician and i was with them and traveling with them and that part was great. with my grandmother it was dark and then back with the band again. it was a contrast that was so hard to handle, and i didn't remember much about it until i went into therapy. >> seems like a roller coaster ride. you mentioned that you don't remember much. there are hints in this book of abuse, sexual abuse even, but you never come right out and say it. is it because you don't remember or because it's just too painful? >> partly because i don't remember and partly because i don't want to delve too deeply into it. i don't know how much i would gain from going into it, and when i was in their, i was urged to try to go into regression and pull stuff out. you know, i don't think it was
8:22am
really as serious as so many people suffer, and i do think, too, that redemption for me has been through being creative and allowing it to come out. and the other thing that's wonderful is i've done that. allowed it to come out. some of it is a bit icky, some of the scenes are rather dodgy, but it's important to remember sympathy, apathy and similar experience for post-war children. >> i want to ask you about something controversial and you write about it in the book. accused of looking on a child pornography website and you've given quite a defense of it in your book. can you explain what happened? >> i was trying to prove that credit card companies were taking money for child porn. i didn't enter a website, didn't look at images, and a couple of us that were campaigning and we gave it up in the end because it seemed so futile.

it seems strange that it's been proved that credit card companies could refuse to take money from any website that they choose, but there's too much money out there. >> and because of that, you had to actually register as a sex offender. >> i had to register as a sex offender because i wouldn't go to court. 11 computers were taken from my hou house, you know. an investigator found that i hadn't -- a forensic investigator found out that i hadn't entered the website, and -- but nonetheless, by the time the court -- the case came to -- the charges came to be presented to me, it was five month i had to wait. i was exhausted, and i felt if i went to court i would be offering myself up for sacrifice, so i was kind of waiting for this moment, to do the book, put it down, and once that actually happened is more stuff has come out. a couple of guys on the investigating force have come forward and gave me letters to say that they never believed and there was no evidence, that i'd actually entered a website and a
8:24am
guy got hold of the actual hard drive and said, you know, there's irrefutable proof that i didn't face it but now i can come and face you. it would have been tough and certainly impossible for me to go to court. >> so much to talk about, beyond, that all of your music, some of those wild days. how did you start smashing the guy tar, which later became your signature move? >> it's kind of a bit artie fartie. i was at art school, a course about rat callization art and changing the way we do art, painting and sculpture, and i used my guitar in a different way on stage. i had big amplifiers, and one day i was hamming around with my guitar and the neck broke off, and hi people in the audience from my class at art college and they were looking at me and saying, pete, this is the opportunity to go the whole way and i went the whole way and then it became a gimmick. >> crazy days, the classic drugs
8:25am
and rocki 'n' roll kind of thin, alcoholism, the whole thing. you talk about it in the book. do you ever look around and say i'm still here, i can't believe it. while so many others are not? >> because i didn't do it properly. >> well, that's one way to look at it. was there something cathartic about writing this book and putting it all down? >> yeah. there was. you know, there were bits when i thought i wish there was more. i'm coming across a bit boring but i tell the truth in the back. >> the book is not boring and it's an honor to have you here to talk about it. >> thank you very much. >> once again the book is called "who i am." just ahead, four websites that will change the way you shop after a check with your local news on a monday morning.
